Rahul took 15 off Ben Cutting's over but Bumrah pulled it back in the next over.

"[Rahul] has been batting really well so it's sometimes hard to bowl to a batsman like that". The defeat left Punjab on 12 points with one game to go.

After losing Chris Gayle (18) early on, Rahul and Aaron Finch (46) added 111 for the second wicket to put the visitors on course but Jasprit Bumrah broke the risky stand with the Australian's wicket in the 17th over. Then Bumrah responded to the crisis by sending back Finch in his final burst.

The Karnataka batsman shared a 111-run second wicket partnership with Aaron Finch (46) to take Punjab to the brink of a successful run chase but Bumrah scalped three wickets in his second spell to derail the chase.

Earlier, Kieron Pollard had blasted a 23-ball 50 to help Mumbai to a big total. The match is scheduled to begin at 8:00 PM IST onwards. While the things are quite clear for Kings XI Punjab, in order to get to the playoffs they need to win both of the remaining matches while it is not the case with Mumbai Indians who can not be sure of a berth in the playoffs even after winning both of their remaining matches. Mumbai has been in trouble due to its middle order failure, Although Suryakumar Yadav and Ewin Lewis haven't failed so far, but Kieron Pollard, Pandya Brothers, and Rohit Sharma were failed in some important games.

Australia appeals to 'missing' African athletes to give themselves up
They arrived in Sydney less than 24 hours before their visas expired to leave Australia, or risk detention or deportation. Several African athletes escaped from the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, a lot of them from Cameroon.

After a cautious start, Krunal stuck two consecutive sixes and a four in the 12th over off Marcus Stonis, while Pollard followed it up with two sixes and as many fours in the next two overs.

However, their playoff hopes took a hit when they suffered a seven-wicket loss to Rajasthan Royals (RR) here at the Wankhede Stadium a few days back. With only one win in their next six matches, Punjab are in the bottom half of the points table for the first time this season. But as the West Indian all-rounder was poised for a big score, Ravichandran Ashwin (2/18) removed him in the 16th over, bringing Punjab back into the game. Eventually, Mumbai scored just 35 runs in the last five overs, but with 186, they were above par anyway.

Evin Lewis needs 18 runs to get to 3000 in T20s. One down Kishan's stay at the crease was also cut short by Tye, who stuck in his second over.

Suryakumar Yadav has been in fine form for the defending champions, and he will be eager for more runs in the must-win clash. Skipper Rohit Sharma's (6) poor run also continued. Meanwhile, the two flood-lights went off after the 10th over and play was halted for about 12 minutes.
